Marc Fish, Laminaria Console, UK, 2015
Fish constantly strives to transcend the barriers of art, design, sculpture, and furniture. His sublimely unique works possess a timelessness that could be found seamlessly in the most contemporary of settings to the most traditional. Exploring the Victorian obsession with natural history, these one-of-a-kind pieces are created through Fish’s incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today. While the curvilinear forms of Fish’s works harken back to Art Nouveau, his process pushes the limits of 21st century furniture design.
Marc Fish’s unique console is hand-carved from American black walnut. This work, made with cold carving techniques, showcases Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination. Manipulated into sinuous layered shapes, the wood has been hand-carved, sanded, polished, and finished with oil and wax. Following Fish’s Laminaria Chaise and Laminaria Library Steps, this piece furthers the artist’s exploration of twisted seaweed forms, as its title, Laminaria, a genus of seaweed, suggests. At once unique sculpture and functional object, the delicate chaise embodies a seemingly organic, unprecedented form while revealing the artist’s hand at work.
